William Harvey (1797-1866), son of settlers of the Springfield Meeting community, Isaac and Lydia Dicks Harvey, recorded the plat for Harveysburg in early 1829, opened the first store, and soon established a large pork packing business. His cousin Dr. Jesse Harvey established a medical practice, erected a carding mill and opened an academy. Jesse's wife Elizabeth Burgess Harvey opened a school for black children.
